Portfolio of Josephine Maureen
HEYThank you for your interest. Im Josephine Maureen, a visual communication design student currently taking my sixth semester in Bina Nusantara University.
Although I do a wide range of creative works, I have a soft spot for brand identity design, especially for those brands with dreams and vision. Why? Because they have stories, and I love stories - dont we all? As a great fan of art and story-telling, Im also into acting, cinematography, watercolor painting, music, and writing.
This book contains a collection of my projects from 2012-2015. Please enjoy!

Personalbrandingbranding, illustration, web design
-A personal brand identity of mine as a designer and illustrator. The color orange symbolizes creativity and warmth while yellow is happy, fun, and bright. I consider creative, fun, warm, and professional as my keywords. The childish pattern of creativity-related items has something to do with my passion in illustration and story-telling, as children tend to have wilder fantasy and higher imagination. I believe that people should not kill those imagination and dreams with adults reality, and I wish my art can help not just children, but everyone to keep their dreams and fight for them.
11While keep living my idealism about dreams and imagination, I still include professionalism as a keyword. It is shown through the composition and layout of my brand identity - tidy and structured.
-TRIBO Clothing is a fictional clothing brand for a branding project. It targets teenagers from 17-25 years old and middle-to-high socioeconomic status. The big idea of this brand is being tidy doesnt mean being boring. It offers the popular tribal pattern, for mainly semi-formal occasions.
-Bakso Keraton is a small restaurant in K. H. Syahdan Street in West Jakarta, Indonesia. This restaurant offers traditional Indonesian beef meatball, with the large-sized tendon meatball as its speciality. The business was opened in February 2010 by Nurdianto, a Javanese man who currently resides in Jakarta, the capital city. Nurdianto didnt choose to open his restaurant near Binus University without any good reason. The area is a pretty busy and active part of the city, especially with students from the university. It is proven by the fact that 80% of the customers in Bakso Keraton are university students, while the 20% are local residents.
TRADITIONALBakso is Indonesian traditional meatball. Nurdianto made each meatball by himself in traditional way every morning before opening the restaurant. Keraton is traditional name for palace of old kingdoms in Indonesia. WARMThe meatball soup is best served hot, enjoyed best while its stil warm. The atmosphere when people dine in the restaurant is usually warm and friendly. FUNWhile enjoying the traditional meatball in warm atmosphere, customers (which mostly are university students) should feel the fun and cheerfulness of being with their friends.

liang tehcap pistolillustration, packaging
-Liang teh is a common herbal tea found in Indonesia. Just like most kinds of herbal tea, it is often associated with Chinese. It is usually referred to as liang cha - literally translated as cool tea. The new design is inspired by traditional Chinese paintings. They usually have good management of white space, making them minimalistic, simple, yet beautiful. Red is a very prominent color in Chinese culture, which is why the usage of red in this packaging is important - as in the original one. But too much red will make it look hot instead of cooling and refreshing, which are the true characteristics of the drink.

This is an assignment in which I had to design a music poster for fictional concert, the tickets, and the album from a local musician. I chose Marcell Siahaan. He is a pop and R&B singer from Indonesia, best-known for his slow-tempo love songs. The main target audiences of this concert are male/female adults with slow-music preference and middle-to-high socioeconomic status. In accordance to these criterias, the main keywords for the design are minimalistic, clean, and exclusive. The design was made to be simple, non-crowded, and relatively low in saturation to show some luxury.
